Hulless Gourmet Popcorn Line
Popcorn is a healthy, whole grain snack. Whole grain means that it contains the entire grain, including the outside, or hull. The term “hullless popcorn” is a bit of a misnomer because all popcorn has a hull. However, some popcorn varieties have a hull that is naturally tender. This unique gourmet popcorn tends to be smaller than the popcorn you are used to and they have smaller hulls which make it easier to chew and less likely to get stuck in your teeth or gums. If you love popcorn but have been avoiding it because of large, sharp hulls, consider giving one of our “hullless” gourmet popcorn varieties a try. No matter which variety of our hulless you select, you can’t go wrong!
Although these tiny varieties are slightly more expensive than typical ‘cardboard’ popcorn, consider this: Most of these hulless varieties produce 800-900 pounds per acre compared to the over fertilized commercial varieties that typically produce over 13,000 pounds per acre. They truly are unique and special.
We recommend popping all of our smaller varieties using a medium to low heat as they do not contain the moisture content of the ‘huge’ varieties and take a “tiny” bit longer to pop!
Please note that the hulless variety does NOT work in hot air poppers!
